$1.5M Meltwater Champions Chess Tour: Opera Euro Rapid | Day 8 | Commentary by P. Leko & T. Sachdev



People, specifically chess players themselves, say the darnedest features of chess and regarding chess players. Below are some of our favored misconceptions concerning the royal video game. A few of these expressions are undoubtedly off-target, some of them are uneducated perception, as well as some of them are disputes that could or may not be legitimate.

Chess may not be the simplest game to grab, however it is much from the most expensive. You need to recognize the actions of the 6 pieces, where the things with the least significance, the Pawn, has one of the most complex steps. You have to memorize the rules about attacking and defending the King, including castling. After that there are a few regulations regarding games where neither player wins. One side of this misconception is legitimate—- it is tough, extremely difficult, to learn to play chess well. One player in a hundred achieves supremacy.

There is some link between chess talent and general intelligence. Chess does involve, after all, using numerous advanced compartments of the brain as skillfully as applicable. People from all walks of life have fun playing chess, several attaining mastery.

In fact, this isn’t a misstatement, since chess is for everyone. It is for nerds, eggheads, geeks, and boffins, as usually as it is for anyone else. People who want to call other people unpleasant names should better say,’ chess is only for nerds ‘, but this is plainly untrue. Even if it was on target, so what? Intelligent, awkward, quirky people have made more contributions to the evolution of society than have the rest. If they want to play chess, that’ s their business.

In 2006, the finest computers play chess better than 99.99% of people, but are evenly leveled in games against the top humans. If, as some experts think, computers are gaining 20– 30 rating points per year, the moment will soon arrive when humans have no chance against the best machines.

Here we run the peril of upsetting the many meritorious chess organizers who have spent years trying to prevail upon the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that chess should be included as an Olympic sport. Lifting light pieces of wood or clicking rapidly on a computer monitor is not physically challenging work. As any quantity of photos from foregone high level chess events will demonstrate, chess players don’t always cut a lean, trim, muscular profile.

Here we try to make amends with those very same organizers who nearly convinced the IOC that chess is a sport. A game between two extraordinary chess masters is full of tension, where superior nerves can make the difference between an also-ran and a winner.

To date it is unquestionable that women have not performed as well as men in chess events. There are many possible reasons for this. One may be that male players are often expert at making female players feel uncomfortable at chess events. The Polgar sisters have gone a long way to convince the chess world that women can play very well. Perhaps one day we will discover that women can even play better than men. No one really knows.
